That felt so sloppy I can't believe it ended up being a PB
GM @ 8:15:38
7:57:78 Orange GM
I've made a few minor speed improvements, but I really don't know how to improve at the roll to get to GM. A fading roll I can do reasonably well, but the full invisible version...clearing more than a line or two is just luck for me.
Oh my god WHAT!!!!
M in 8:33:11 !!!!!!!
This was completely unexpected. I'm so happy...
As always, let me know if I missed anything, made any mistakes, have more than one score per user, etc.
@Xaphiosis, I put your S6 (without a clear) on instead of your S5 with a clear (higher grade takes priority)
Many congratulations are in order:
Huge congrats to @eskatre and @FeV for being the first GM's of the post-GDQ generation.
Congrats to @MaryHadALittle for making it to orange line GM! I hope you're enjoying that PCB.
Shoutout to @Qlex for the Sub-8 orange line GM!
@Novomancy @Jii @mushroom congratulations on making it to M.
Thanks for the update!
I had JUST wiped my TAP board so I could see my ST's. Took me almost 9 months to beat my previous best and there was so much room for improvement still.
Uhh... decided to waste some time to play TAP Master using my SNES D-pad clone (which I normally use to bash my head against death mode), and suddenly, this:
S8 @ 13:16.81 (total wipe-out on fading roll)
I have no idea why I'm doing so poorly with the arcade stick (never exceeded S6, and so many misdrops). Maybe it's time for a tune-up, or a better mount or something :/
S9 @ 8:47:46. This is going to be like death M all over again...
Are you sure your stick is set to 4-way?
Definitely 4-way. You can see my hacked-together setup here (zoom in to see gate):
I discussed the matter with @JBroms; he suggested that getting used to the sonic drop movement takes time. My stick has an idle wobble of around 3mm each way on the horizontal axis, but I have no way to know if that's fine. Buttons are OK. Problem could be between seat and controller, or my claw-like between-middle-and-ring-finger grip. That or I have an super-dexterous thumb which is inflating my D-pad scores.
Don't worry, I know how you feel.
S6 in 08:51:63
I should be happy about finally getting a PB, but still...
I was so close to clearing this thing! ._.
On MAME with correct framerate:
I believe you, don't worry; but technically that screenshot proves nothing as the today ranking is cleared.
Yeah, I remembered I should have done it only after closing MAME. :/
Very slow for me, but hey, it's an orange S9.
Also, how do I know if my MAME runs at the proper framerate or not?
EDIT: Turns out it was 60. Oops. Got it working at the proper framerate now, guess I'm just gonna have to beat this!
I entered 900s with a low and clean stack, so if I hadn't choked that terribly this could've probably been a clear. But whatever, I think I raised my level PB by about 300lvls today, so I'm happy with that . I'll post a valid proof (score on today's ranking) of 61.weird hz when I clear (or in other words, as soon as it could potentially become relevant).
time attack PB, orange S9 in 7:58:76 (missed 700s tetris)
